quarter stringer boats-
« on: February 24, 2008, 07:15:17 PM »
curious to know what the +/-'s of quarter stringer boats (ie 19 foot challenger) are- I know full stringer = stronger, and better for big hp- but for river boat- what HP limits should be considered etc.  Any thoughts or theorys on stringer length and Challengers???

Full stringers will definately hold more power. Usually have less stress cracking and less hook over time from what I have been told. I have also been in 1/4 stringer boats with 5 people doing 75-80 all day with no issues whatsoever and seen lots of em doing the same thing. Now if you are gonna run a blown,alky whatever then I would get a full stringer. For a nice lake motor I would not worry as long as the boats already in good solid shape.

My old Challenger had about 400hp and no stringer issues.
There is another guy out where we are with about 500hp seeing 75-80 without any problems.
